I've been trying to work out how to write "I stroked FB's no. 2 on Monday and was delighted to find that it was very soft and not at all spiky" without it looking a bit , but as we're all grownups I've decided to leave the statement as it is.

Pony tail for swim, bike. Throw a baseball cap and shades on for the run. Well actually still have shades on from the bike leg.

Parky - I have layers and I too find a high ponytail painful under a cycle helmet.  I tend to have the upper half of my hair in one ponytail, then for the swim, I put it all in a high ponytail but not pulling it all through (to create a bun effect).  After the swim I put it in a low ponytail so it comes below the helmet.  Depending on how I feel I may leave it like that or put it back in a high ponytail for the run.  All throughout the Tri, I keep the upper half pulled off my face.

Just popping in to say thanks everyone.  I've tried all of the suggestions and have found an easy solution for Sunday from above.  I'll work on learning to plait for the next time (if there is one).  I quite like the pigtail/Pippi Longstocking look.

Jeez, I thought it was a faff having bobbed hair.  It permanently looks sh*te at the moment, was considering growing it so I could tie it up, but this thread's just made me think going shorter would be better!

Good luck with the tri Parklife!
